Catalogue Note

A protestant whose family had fled Antwerp to settle in Amsterdam in 1586, Vinckboons played a crucial role in the development of genre and landscape painting in the northern Netherlands. His wooded landscapes with dense foliage and village vistas, such as the present example, are from his early period when he was most indebted to the Frankenthal painter Gillis van Coninxloo.
